SH-1 Atamuri Bridge Replacement Geotech Investigation

Location : SH-1 Atamuri Bridge

A particularly interesting drilling project with each bore hole presenting its own health and safety concerns, these included:

  • Flood river levels (as the rig and equipment were below this level, constant communication was required with the river control authority, escape and rescue plans developed).
  • Access through and working in a "working forest".
  • Steep site set-ups with tall vegetation requiring helicopter support to mobilise the drilling rig and equipment to site.
  • Working adjacent to State Highway 1 (high traffic flows at open road speeds).

Depth : 35m

Drilling Method : Fully wire line cored (HQ size)

Number of Wells : 6 holes in project
